We all know that life is a continuous learning process, but sometimes we all need a little lift. My name is Gill, and I have been teaching for more than 10 years. Piano and Mandarin Chinese are my specialties. However, my passion for teaching doesn't stop just there because I know teaching is also the best learning experience for me.
Before age 13, I lived in Taiwan and went to music school there. I am a native Mandarin speaker and a classical trained pianist. My teaching styles varies with every student because everyone's need and way of learning are all different. Making my piano class fun and Chinese class practical are the first priorities!
Depends on my students and parents' goals, either they just want to have fun learning music or take it all the way to write essays in Chinese, I'm all for it! I have a B.A. degree on psychology, and minor in criminal justice from Cal Poly Pomona, and I use positive reinforcement as my main teaching approach. For younger students, I use tokens then exchange for rewards to motivate and to make learning like games.
I look forward to hear from you to learn together and to reach your goals!
